Summer Of 2012 A Very Good Year For Carroll Gardens' Fruit Crops
2012 seems to have been exceptional for fruit-bearing trees around the neighborhood. You may remember the apricot tree on DeGraw Street that had an over-abundance of fruit. back in June And now, in early September, there is more evidence that this year's hot summer has produced a bumper crop.
Just look at all the pears ripening on this tree on Carroll Street. Though it bears fruit every fall, I have never seen so many hanging from its branches.
And look at this fig tree on Second Place at the corner of Court Street. Quite impressive, no?
Did you have a bumper crop in your neighborhood yard this summer? How were the tomatoes?
